Adjacent to one of the oldest cinemas in London and downstairs from the Electric House, The Diner opens at 8am for breakfast, switches to the all-day menu at 12pm and keeps serving until late at night (you can drop in for dinner until midnight Friday and Saturday or 10pm Sunday).

We also keep serving at the bar until 1am Thursday to Saturday – stocked with 18 different draught and bottled beers and ales, wines and strong new takes on classic cocktails. The Diner is all about unfussy combinations of the best ingredients; quick, friendly service and food that is sent straight from the kitchen as and when it’s ready. There’s booth and bar seating, and a specially chosen soundtrack played from the Diner’s reel-to-reel machine.

Saturday night at the movies the Electric, Portobello what a great cosy venue a cinema surfers dream.
By contrast the Electric Dinner cold, loud and somewhat over priced drinks and food. This venues obviously popular with the local neighbourhood crowd but needs to do a bit more to be welcoming to be fit for foodies.

This is an ok diner type place. The burger was good (meat and bun) but chips were soggy and the salad was very uninspiring and the guacamole processed tasting. Service was lovely however and location is perfect for the movies next door.

Food and service is always great here but the pickles weren’t pickles at all. Don’t order that. Also a bit too loud for our liking for a Monday night but overall 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

Food was great really delicious however we were 6 people and the booths would really suit a party of four more comfortably - we were also too close to a speaker so the loud music was slightly too loud for us to hear each other even though we asked for the music to be turned down slightly it wasn’t easy to chat to friends over the table.

A good early evening dinner. Love the cocktails and wine list here, and coffee is always punchy and excellent. Food just ok. But a good buzzy atmosphere.

Overall the food was good, nothing special for the price and small portions, and service was terrible. It took us 30 mins to get the check and another 20 to bring us the card reader after we asked multiple times. I have never been made to feel so unimportant or like my time was unnecessary.

This place had great food—- seems like typical diner food but it was outstanding. The mozzarella sticks were heavenly and unlike any you have ever had before great twist. The chicken was the bomb and so was the Mac and cheese side. Cauliflower salad was really good as well—- food balance to the comfort foods :)

The chicken was pink inside. we were told its because it was marinated. didn't look like that to us. the bite we had wasn't good. we had the cheeseburger instead. it was ok. the sousces were very spicy. no side included so it was pricy. not worth it.

Good food, not amazing, but solid and tasty. Decent portions. Good service. Gets a little noisy and can be a little difficult to be heard. Very busy, so book ahead.
Despite that, I'd go again

Took a while for us to be served initially, but well worth the wait. I had the best poached eggs I’ve ever had, and my boyfriend loved his burger. Our meal was also exceptionally cheap as we had tickets to see a film in the electric cinema and so we got 50% off. Would definitely go there again

I met up with friends at Electric Diner and the food was great. I had the burger and thought it was very good. My friends also liked their food. The service was very friendly but a little slow to wait on us, in my opinion.

We booked the restaurant before the movie, based on the pictures showing booths with real diner feel, and good reviews. However, when we arrived, as we were two, we were shown to a tiny table of two, in between two couples just few centimetres from us. I was told that if I wanted to have a booth I should have mentioned in in the reservation. Good to know for the next time, but they should probably mention this somewhere at the booking site too! Luckily they had a cancellation just when we were considering whether to stay or not, and we got our booth. From thereon, everything was very nice: friendly and quite fast service, food was ok (we had salad, hamburger and mozzarella sticks) and the atmosphere is great. You can bring drinks to the movie, we were showed an indoor way to the theatre.

Hi, I came on Sunday for a meal at resturant & first off the aircon was broken, on one of the hottest days. Then we were moved to near bar, near window, which as the seats were very high, my feet hurt, as I have a muscle conditions, which hurt my joints & this was very uncomfortable for me, the food came out and that was very disappointing too. Very salty steak. Was not nice. We paid for meals, however on reflection we shouldn't of due to all the things that happened. It's a shame as imagine it usually is a nice resturant. We also had a begger come up to us twice asking for money, which is not a nice experience.
